Cal is the real deal on the 1000cc. I know not yet 3 races but he is really suiting the top class now. Not Bradley bashing, but even last year I didnt think he had proven he had earned a motogp seat. Think contract was given too early, for PR reasons maybe. Now it looks like Dovi will have to be unseated to make way for Smith. Its hard to see how tech3 can justify getting rid of a 125 world champ, twice 250 runner up and last years 3rd place motogp rider to a rider who has yet to win a mid category race and is currently looking like a top ten moto2 rider. This is not an attack on Smith more a defence of Dovi, as he is a quiet but very consistent top rider who doesnt deserve relegation to CRT or a satelite ducati. Shame for him to only have one season on the M1 before having to move on again, it wont do his career any good. Cal could move to yamaha garage, but Spies is too class a rider to lose just because of first 2 poor races.

@e Unless Bradley Smith starts hitting the podium regularly and has a few wins this year, I personally don't see him fit for GP and on such a nice ride as the satellite Yamaha. I felt they made to many promises to him early on, and promises should go both ways, it's time Smith started living up to his promises to be a more successful rider. Dovi certainly would be my choice over an untested mid pack rider from Moto2. I'm being harsh, but this is racing. In regards to Cal, naturally it's too early to call things, but he's got great confidence and is well settled with the 1000cc Yam this year. He was a little squirrely in the first few laps of Jerez but settled down. He was smart enough not to take a dangerous lunge at Dani too. Looking to see what he can do the rest of year.
